...just from my experience:

PHP is - for different, but mainly technical/historical reasons - very widely 
spread within web applications, one major reason was/is i.e. the large 
(because "easy") availability on low cost hosting environments in the past - 
but the most advantages was/are on the side of the hosting providers....

PHP might be easier to learn then other languages or frameworks, but 
maintaining large / complex applications / software projects within PHP could 
be a real mess.

We develop nearly any web application with Zope / ZODB since >= 10 years but 
are a hosting company byself - so we was not bound to PHP as many other 
internet hosting users in the past. A colleagues company produces very high 
level expert systems on Perl and Catalyst - requiring high skilled Perl 

>From my experience developing within Zope / ZODB (with Python, DTML and/or 
ZPT) allows very high quality products within very short timeframes and even 
further maintaining the project is relative ressource efficient - especially 
compared to PHP.

Most web application data structures (i.e. a "simple" web page) fit's much 
better by a oo object strategy then a relational (RDBMS) one. 

The major typical ressource hole within typical PHP+SQL web applications or 
i.e. a CMS solution is the translation of typical data objects into tables and 
vice versa. Producing i.e. one "simple" CMS page within a PHP-SQL CMS easily 
could trigger hundreds of SQL requests into many different tables - a 
significant overhead which has to implemented by developers and handled by the 

But this is my view onto the issue - just my two cents...
